About Leonard Achan Sr.
Leonard Achan Sr. passed away in August 2007 from head and neck cancer. With his passing, the world lost a passionate man who valued life, people, health, and most importantly, family.
Achan emigrated to the United States with his wife in the late 1960s and brought with him a personality full of passion and love. He created a great loving environment for his wife and three children, passing along many of his interests and affections, which are also honored by this scholarship.
During a short remission after undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatment, he made sure to thank everyone who contributed to his care, only asking that his family take care of one another as well as others. His cancer returned a few months later, leading to his passing.
